My online group decided to keep going with Monster of the Week, where the weeks are fast and the monsters are furious. This mystery owes everything to The Wraith, Blacktop Wasteland, Christine, Death Proof, Ghost Rider, Fast & Furious, and my childhood obsession with cars that drove by themselves.
I wrote up a very light PbtA game about mischievous animals trying to act like people and generally committing low stakes crimes in the process. The fever dream prototype of this game turned out to be the perfect fit for the roleplaying club I ran for elementary schoolers last year.
Here's the Wasteland from Glow in the Dark reframed as Hard Zones for AW: Burned Over.
Tonight's dice club with the kids was the first time in a long while I felt energized afterward. I think we found "our game" - inspired by Untitled Goose Game, completely normal animals come together for relatively nonthreatening heists.
Baba Yaga is the Colonel's 13th secret spice. A fast food Monster of the Week mystery set in around your local Chicken Hut.
I've run Monster of the Week twice now. Instead of APs of the sessions, I figured it's probably more valuable to post the mysteries I prepped. Hopefully someone out there can make use of them!
